Locker in a 27 spline Chrysler 8.25?

Hi, everyone.
I've decided I want to lock my rear differential in my '95 XJ. Seeing as it has the 27 spline Chrysler 8.25, my only options for a lunchbox seem to be the Powertrax No-slip or the Lock-Rite. I want to do the work myself as well, so anything having to do with re-setting my gears is out of the question as far as upgrading the axle goes.

My question is, is this axle strong enough to run a locker in? I'm on 33's right now with a 3.55 gear ratio. I drive mostly on pavement with a four-wheeling trip about once a month and I don't try anything too ridiculous. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

its strong enough but you can seriously get a 29 spline for like 100 - 200$ and it is much stronger axle.

they come in 97+ cherokee's, just make sure you know what you are looking for so you dont buy a dana 35.

the 27sp. 8.25 is alittle stronger than the d35 ive heard and prob. can handle 33s no issue but yeah like said before find a 97-2001 xj they have 29 sp. 8.25and are comparable to the d44 which can easily handle 33s locked all day.
